Today we continued with our data collection and tried to place some of it in our power point slides for the group presentations that we will complete this Wednesday. Then we figured out the ratio that we would need to follow to get the oil to be 1% ZrO2 nano particles. After this, we filled the tribometer with the oil and began testing with the nano particles. After just running for 5 minutes we were able to see the build up of some tribofilm that increased the longer that we let the machine run. Tomorrow, we hope to analyze the difference in data between the sample with the tribofilm and the sample without.
